of life that old religion did so beautifully for us. one of the good people i interviewed for the book said the purpose of religion is to guide to the living through the experience of death and i think we need to recreate some of those rituals because giving my father last rites was immediately relieving of my anxiety and suffering. it helped me know that i had left my father and wherever he was going, whatever form it would take i felt i had done the right thing and i was being reassured by an ancient tradition that was there to do exactly what that volunteer chaplain was doing for me. >> were you able to aggregate how much the u.s. spends in taxpayer dollars on end of life care? was that easy to find? >> it was not easy to find the right statistic. there are a lot of wrong statistics floating out there but the reality is a quarter of what medicare spends is spent on the last year of life so when you consider people may be in medicare 20 or 30 years that is an extraordinary imbalance and it shows something majorly wrong with our decisionmaking get the end of life. >> this is a preview

and this is just something for us to meditate about, that the children in el salvador where the war went on forever and will never and really, the children have been left so impoverished that they can no longer eat without having pain in their teeth because what has the war left them with? the war has left them with a toothache forever. this is what war does. it isn't just when you start -- stop shooting people and bombing their houses and destroying everything that somehow they are going to be okay. they are not. so i wanted to start their and also to go on to these two new books. now i have been trying for i guess the last 20 something years to stop writing books.
